Plus Size Dresses to Beat the Heat

Fortunately, today many department and fashion retail chains sell a wide variety of plus size clothing choices, including plus size dresses. As there's nothing better than wearing a pretty dress in the summertime, we've picked out our favorite warm weather plus size dresses for you to browse.

Elegant and flattering, maxi dresses, one of the more popular plus size dresses styles, can be found in many different colors and prints, and we like this JWLA for Johnny Was Amber Dip-Dye Maxi Dress ($215) because of its unique multicolor floral embroidery detailing. With a neckline featuring smocking and ruffles with thin spaghetti straps, this dress features smocking at the waist, and its skirt falls straight to the ankles. The embroidered flowers look so pretty against the ombre effect of the blue dip-dye knit. Made of cotton, this dress will be a staple in your summer party wardrobe.

Another flattering style for plus size dresses, wrap and faux wrap dresses like this Suzi Chin Maggy Boutique Faux Wrap Dress ($78.90) work to make your waist look smaller. With soft pleating to accent curves and the lovely aster shade, this dress is a stunner. Zips up the back with an hook-and-eye closure, this dress measures 42 inches from the shoulder to the hem, making this dress hit at mid-thigh. With a fully lined bodice, the crossover look in the faux wrap is attractive on every figure.

A variety of printed sundresses, a hot trend this summer, can be found among our selection of plus size dresses, and our favorite is this Style&co. Plus Size Sleeveless Printed Beaded Dress ($50.99). Featuring a scoop neckline accented by beading, this colorful abstract printed dress is a pullover style with no closures. Sleeveless, with bra-friendly straps, this dress is tiered at the hem. Hitting below the knee, this dress measures 47 inches from the center back neckline to the hem.

If you're looking for a classic dress to wear to work this summer, we've got lots of great choices in our plus size dresses shop, like this Jones New York Plus Size Pleated Dress ($104.25). Made from an airy cotton fabric, this sleeveless, V-neck dress features pleating detailing down the front with a button closure. Tying at the waist, the skirt flows freely, giving this classic dress a touch of femininity. Hitting below the knee, this is a dress that can change its look easily with different accessories.

Kim Kardashian Wedding Dress and Date Rumors

 Kim Kardashian Wedding Dress
This week Kim Kardashian and her sister Kourtney were spotted out and about in New York checking out wedding dresses for Kim’s big day. They visited many shops and had lunch with designer Vera Wang. Could she be designing Kim’s dress, that is only speculation right now. Rumor has it  Kim wants 2  dresses designed by Wang that compliment her lavish 20.5 carat engagement ring.

A Kim Kardashian and Kris Humphries wedding date has not been announced as of yet. Rumors have said that the big day will take place this summer, most likely August  in Los Angeles. The couple appears to be preparing for the wedding and have already made a gift registry at Gearys in Beverly Hills. The wedding is sure to be a top notch affair with a wedding planner to the stars at the helm.

There has been lots of talk about the wedding being televised either as part of one of the current Kardashian television shows, or even as it’s own spin off. Camera crews did follow Kim Kardashian on her recent wedding dress shopping trip including her lunch with Vera Wang. I am sure we will see all of the wedding events unfold on television making us feel like we are there.

IMATS Los Angeles 2011 Part 1! :D

Hey, guys! :D

How has your week been?!

I just spent the day going through my IMATS photos - surprisingly, I took a lot! They are all sorted out and this is just the first part! ;)

It was a fun experience - I learned so much about makeup, there were brands I've never tried (Graftobia, Mehron, and OCC to name a few), cool products that I didn't even know about (Model in a Bottle and Beauty So Clean!), and superb artistry - like seriously, amazing!

I tried my best to put my photos in order. For bigger pictures, please click each. :)

I got there at around 8:30am. You'd think that's early, right? Nope, there were so many people in line - I was like, "Wow!".

Pasadena Civic Auditorium

Where Hollywood Week for American Idol was held, haha. ;)

I love the location! There are so many restaurants around, you won't have a hard time finding a place to eat. And if you have some money left over, you can browse the stores at the Paseo Colorado - they have Sephora and MAC (yeah, more makeup, haha!), Reference (but it's really Forever 21), BCBG Max Azria, DSW, Macy's... I love this place! And Old Town Pasadena is just a couple of blocks away, we always walk to Old Town -- hello, big Forever 21 and H&M!

Okay, gotta focus... IMATS!

Yes, of course I posed in front of that IMATS poster (but, that's not me, haha). ;P

I took some pictures while in line... the line was long, no kidding!

Well, actually this wasn't so bad. It was long, but it moved quickly. They were organized and efficient. But I suggest getting there as early as you can because the line was crazy long when I went to lunch.

At the main entrance, this is the first thing you're gonna see:

Royal&Langnickel had a blogger event at the Sheraton Pasadena the day before IMATS, but I wasn't able to attend. Mary Anne from Royal&Langnickel was so nice, though! When she found out I am a blogger but wasn't able to attend, she still gave me the gift bag they gave out the day before. I will definitely take pictures of what I got for you guys to see. :D

This next picture are brushes from another stall, I just can't remember which one it's from. I have it on here anyway so you guys can see the different kinds of brushes available and what the price range is like. :)

Next stop: Napoleon Perdis!

I love that chandelier they had! :)

Then, I went to NYX.

There were so many people at the NYX area! They had a lot of products and the prices are great!

Here are some of the NYX products I checked out:

After that I walked around, and stopped at the BodyFX booth. Really cool stuff!

If you get stuff from BodyFX, imagine how cool you would be for Halloween! ;)

There was a booth selling some really pretty brush rolls, and one of their designs (not sure which one though :/) is a favorite of Lady Gaga's.

Another brand I am not familiar with is Crown Brush. They had a lot of really affordable products!

I also mentioned superb artistry, right? Here are some of them:

Funny story... this guy (Or girl? I'm not so sure...) was lurking behind me, probably planning to scare me or something, haha. Good thing I saw his reflection on my camera. ;)

So cool! This one is my favorite! :)

I also really appreciate how professional the models are. They will really stop and smile for photos. :D

Yay for Part 1! :D

I hope you enjoyed this post. I have other photos to share with you guys, watch out for Part 2. :)

Have you attended IMATS? How was it for you?
Did you go to the Los Angeles IMATS this past weekend?
